Biography

Luxembourg's most important Impressionist painter, who painted both portraits and landscapes. He often depicted a young woman clothed in white, and also scenes of orchards, flower picking and fruit harvesting or of peasant houses.

After a few months in Paris (1905), Lang was admitted to the Munich Academy in March 1906. He then opened a photographic studio in Dudelange which provided him with a reasonable income. In 1911, he married Anne-Marie Ney, who would appear in many of his paintings, and the same year he started to work as an art teacher. He first taught at the Lycée des Filles in Luxembourg City and then at the Ecole industrielle et commerciale in Esch-sur-Alzette. Unable to make a living from his paintings, for which he received little recognition during his lifetime, Lang had to remain a teacher for the rest of his working life.

Late in life, Lang suffered from severe migraines and almost total blindness. He died in Schifflange on 22 June 1919, aged 45.
